I came up with a cute design to a new top, I am making a matching skirt and pants. The skirt/pants will have some cute trim to it and I will post those when I finish it up. I took my time making up this item today since I wanted it to be perfect! This fits my 1 year old toddler (size 2) as a nice dress, and the 3 year old toddler as a top. I will get pictures of them in it but they were not cooperating with pictures today lol.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

I love the top/dress-Could you tell me how you made the loops for the buttons on the back?  I actually just posted in the other kids board asking for help with this.  Thank you!!

Sure thing, I took some cording (fabric store/section) and I heat sealed the ends, made a loop and then I stitched them in also re-enforced them so they are in there permanently.

Thank you so much ladies! I so enjoyed drafting up this pattern for myself it was loads of fun and nobody within the city limits out of all seamstresses has made these and sold them at craft shows.
